Announcing #RPGaDAY2021 in August


It's that time again! 

Every August for the last few years I've teamed up with Anthony Boyd (Runeslinger) to host #RPGaDAY, an initiative to try to get people worldwide to take a few minutes out of each day to talk about tabletop roleplaying games in a positive way. 

Now, in its EIGHTH year (can you believe it?) we're back again to host #RPGaDAY2021

We've had long questions each day, we've had single words, we've had maps, hexboards, and this year we're reducing #RPGaDAY down to its elements.

We're back to basics, and this time I haven't asked Will Brooks do to the graphics (and you can tell, it's not as professional) - sorry Will - but I've already got him working on plenty of other things...

Each day in August - remember, AUGUST - look at the prompt for that day and use it to inspire a blog post, a video, a podcast, or just a tweet or social media post, that gets the RPG community talking in a positive way. Remember, keep it positive.

As with previous years we've posted the prompts a month early so those of you who record videos or podcasts can get started in advance so it's not a heap of pressure in August itself.

This year, just in case you want to either shake things up, or if you can't think of anything for that day's prompt, most of the days have some alternatives listed. Pick one of the alternatives, or roll a die (how about a D8 as it's the eighth year and halve it) and go with whatever the result points you to. Just remember to tag everything #RPGaDAY2021 so we can see it.

As always, I'll post any translations that are done by people in the gaming community below.

Also, for those of you who want to do videos, podcasts, or blogposts, I've done individual graphics for each day. Feel free to copy them and use them for whatever you need.

Okay, I'm going to go back to my chronological rewatch of the MCU. 

Stay safe everyone, and stay multiclassy.
